Final movie program at Metro Arts cinema!
The Lumen Room - located on the ground level of Metro Arts - has remained an iconic independent cinema, having screened movies regularly since 1980.
Kristian Fletcher has presented movie events in Brisbane for over nineteen years and hosted screenings at Metro Arts since 2004.

Endlessly dynamic, his later output grew more openly lurid and psychosexual, with the ...
